I'm going to snag AsphaltQueen for wisty jewelry surprise!

Claim #3 of 3 / 3 outstanding / 0 in transit /0 received

About Me
Greetings everyone! I'm a 31 year old woman who lives in Florida (USA) with my guy and two cats. My favorite colors are jewel tones like amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, turquoise, and amber. I like silver but not really gold. (Copper's ok too.) My favorite color combination is a deep teal blue and chocolate brown together. It makes me happy. I also love things that go along with my "PhoenixFire" theme like reds/oranges/yellows together. My favorite animals are cats, owls, penguins, bats and red foxes. I love to read, I enjoy photography and I love all things Disney!

I suffer from migraines so please NOTHING musk/amber/patchouli/dragon's blood or floral scented. Unless it smells like you can eat it, it will give me a migraine. I LOVE fruit and dessert scents greatly though. Also, please no bar soaps (skin is sensitive to glycerin) and nothing with artificial sweeteners like NutraSweet (aspartame) or Splenda (sucralose) as I'm allergic to both.

*big wish* -- A robe like this one. It's just so lovely and I desperately need a robe. (3/4 length or long-sleeves, and mid-length overall. Not too short, not too long. I wear a US size 4 and can send measurements if needed.)

*big wish* -- A migraine therapy kit like this and/or neck/shoulder/back therapy pad like this. I have had migraines for more than 15 years and this kind of thing DOES help. I also have permanant damage to my neck (which often triggers migraines) and it causes pain in my neck AND shoulders so the neck/shoulders/back pack would be a lifesaver.

*big wish* -- A tote like this one. I love and covet everything about it from the colors, fabric to the pattern.

*big wish* -- This scarf in these exact colors. I think this is one of the most perfect things ever. I don't really need scarves as a rule because I live in Florida, but I'd find reasons to wear one like this!

*big wish* -- An apron like this or this  or like this especially if it were in teal blue and chocolate brown colors. (Or used like cute owl fabric or such.) I wear a US size 4 or can send measurements if need be.

*big wish* -- A Slanket! I almost bought a "snuggie" but the fabric was icky. (It was like thin felt.) I want soft, awesome microfiber fleece stuff, you know? Something long enough to cover my toes as well. I'm forever using a blanket on the couch so this would come in hand GREATLY.

*big wish* -- An Autumn Leaf Barrette. I miss autumn since we don't get leaves changing colors here in Florida.

 -- An ipod touch cozy - I love this style and the soft fleece interior.  thanks to smacckk for one, but I wouldn't mind having more than one to switch it up - like purses!

 -- Anything with a phoenix on it. I LOVE the phoenix and there's not nearly enough phoenix-related things in the world or my life. You can check out my wisted phoenix items here as inspiration.

 -- A weekender bag like Amy Butler's style. There are some tips here as well. It could be in different fabrics though. (Maybe brown/blue?) It's just too challenging of a project for me!

 -- Something stained glass - sun catcher, glass mosaic item, etc. I just love stained glass and wouldn't even know where to begin making it myself.

 -- Hand knit socks. Something warm and soft (no wool please because it itches me) I've got small feet so like a 6.5 size foot or girl's sized large socks for reference. (HUGE bonus if it's argyle pattern. I don't know why but I love argyle.)

 -- Yoga pants! (examples: like this or this) Roomy, 3/4 length or floor length (30" inseam) comfy, soft, cottony, not too tight on the waist. I lounge in them on my days off and I just love 'em. (US size 4 short length or I can send measurements if need be)
-- A small purse/wristlet like this one.

 -- Something ceramic/pottery or vase or whatever. Again, a skill I don't have but love.

 -- Things for my apartment in Teal Blue and Chocolate Brown. I love these colors together. And I'd love something in them for the home. A quilt or throw; art; kitchen accessories; pillows; curtains, etc., etc.

 -- Wrist warmers in this pattern. It's just utterly cool.

 -- Disney stuff. Be it characters (like Mickey, Figment, Belle, Mike & Sulley, etc.) or movies (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monster's Inc., Lady and the Tramp, etc.) or the parks (I live near WDW but I've never been to Disneyland), or historical stuff (books on Walt or the making of the parks, etc.), or things I can use/take to/wear about any of the above, I LOVE DISNEY. So by all means, get creative! Grin

 -- Something (surprise me!) incorporating owls, penguins, bats, cats or red foxes. They're my favorite animals.

 -- Fused glass, glass (microscope) slide or resin pendants you think I'd like.

 -- A ribbon organizer. Doesn't have to be this fabric. It's more the idea and the style of storage that I like here. Chocolate/Teal color combo would be great as would fun/cute fabric or prints (like owls or something.)

 -- A cool fitted tee like this one or this kinda thing or maybe like this too. I love the color and look of both of these. I wear a US size 4 or typically a size small. I pretty much live in baby doll/fitted tees.

 -- Surprise me! Look at my wists or my wishlist, or the colors I like and see what you can make that you think I'd like.

Craft Supplies
-- Sewing stuff: Rotary cutter and/or self-healing board for sewing. Fabricgasm! I'm a new sewer so I covet fabrics now. And/or Sewing notions, tools or other helpful stuff a newbie sewer would need/covet/want/drool over. (Threads, buttons, snaps, etc.) Thanks missgabbielynn! Leaving it up though since you can never have enough fabric and such! Wink

-- The Softies Kit. I think it'd be fun to have an all-in-one kit to learn to make cute plush. Thanks A2k!

 -- Complete Guide To Sewing Book in either this new edition or this older edition. I'm still a very novice sewer who could make use of a reference book like this. (Especially since no one I know locally sews!)

 -- Starter resin kit/supplies (resin, molds, etc.)

 -- Starter rubber stamp carving stuff. (Maybe a kit or items like tools, the rubber to carve into, how-to/instructions, etc.)

 -- Gemstones and gemstone beads. In every shape, size and color. Donuts, cabs, chips - anything! I LOVE working with gemstones and I can never, ever have enough.

 -- Lampwork beads.

 -- Beading supplies. I create jewelry so I'm always looking for unique and interesting pendants, charms, gemstone beads, large focal beads and such. Also, I love Swarovski crystal, unique clasps or toggles, and jewelry wire in 16 gauge and 24 gauge in any color. Gemstone chips are awesome as well since I make Tree of Life pendants with them.

-- Tea! Especially fruity ones.

 -- Chocolate! (white, milk or dark) No coconut please.

 -- Candies! (whatever neat little treats you enjoy, send 'em my way. I love candy)

 -- Sewing magazines. (especially things geared towards newbies)

 -- Beading magazines (esp ones with projects/tutorials)

Thanks in advance to whomever picks me! Grin

This is my 1st claim, 0, 0.
Hi, I'm Bekki, I'm 21 and I'm from Bristol in the UK. I live with my parents, along with a cat, a hamster, two gerbils, a load of fish and a load of stick insects. I love spiders, cats, ducks, and all sorts of animals. I play the flute, and love music. My favourite colours are dark and electric blue and black, but I like most dark colours. I love old, victorian style things. I sew, knit (sort of), cook, and papercraft and love to try anything new. I love reading. I love the show Stargate!

I'm allergic to dogs (as long as whatever you give me isn't covered in fur, or is washable, I should be fine), lavender, any flowery smelling things. If something smells, try to make it vanilla/strawberry/fruity etc please!

A messenger style bag (for my flute, piccolo and music)
Cloth pads

A black petticoat, shortish would be great
A cardigan (black) (like this)
A ribbon belt
An apron (like this), but in blue and/or black, and possibly with some lace trim etc.)

A wallet for cards and change
Lace gloves

A surprise!


Ribbon, any colour
Yarn, any colour, type and length
Fabric, any types, any patterns apart from skulls
I would love some bamboo or hemp type material. Small amounts are fine. It's really hard to find here.
Zips! Black and blue preferred, any length
Lace trim
Any gothicy bits and pieces
Cardmaking supplies. Paper, stickers, punches, anything would be great

Thank you to whoever claims me!

I claim sg1psychopath for a gothic pincushion and some zips (possibly other stuff as well).

About me I'm a 6 foot tall, 35 y.o. living in Hollywood.

Allergies - no patchouli, sandal wood, nag champa (not actually allergic to these, but they make my nose run horribly), If you send me food stuff, I don't eat mammals but I'm not a vegetarian. My S.O. is allergic to cats - but if you're careful and/or wash & clean thoroughly before sending , he'll be ok. On another food note - I'm allergic to blue food coloring, yes, just blue. If you send me anything that has a scent, I prefer citrus over any other smells.

Things I love: dogs, computers, technology, the internet, circuit board patterns, sci-fi, anime - anything Japanese really but especially hello kitty and san-x, dragon flies, the subway, hummingbirds, hearts, cherry blossoms, bikes

My favorite clothing designers = Oakley, Diesel, and Free People
Dress wise, I do conservative but hip for work (I work at an internet company so I can't dress too stuffy). I'm a t-shirt and jeans girl at home. I love the idea of high heel tennis shoes

Favorite colors: Cobalt Blue (any blue really as long as it doesn't look turquoise or aqua), Pink, Khaki Green, Red, Orange.

Yuck colors: I hate aquamarine, yellow, and turquoise - I don't really hate yellow, but it hates me. I don't like gold toned metals either.

Please package whatever you send me in the smallest box, envelope, whatever as possible because I have a TINY mail box.

Oh and NO Disney related stuff unless I specifically say it's ok!

On To The List

big wishes in red and bold

Wearable Stuff:

If you plan to make me any wearable stuff, please PM me for measurements.
1. a stencilled shirt with an art nouveau style pattern - Women's Medium Please - but must be stretchy as I'm kinda curvy (and long-ish 'cause I'm tall)
2. simple a-line skirt knee length (will send you measurements)
3. Bloomers or bike shorts to wear with skirts while riding my bike.
5. 2" wide fabric belt that's kinda long (can be sash style or with a buckle)  - in any of my favorite colors, denim, or a pretty girlie print (fabric inspiration on my wists).
6. headbands from Heather Bailey's pattern in fabrics from my wists (my sewing machine is busted and I love this pattern so can't make myself more right now)

Other Crafty Stuff:

2. amigurumi cuteness animals, plants, food with faces to join the rest of the stuffies in my cube. (take a look at my previous posts - I have a picture of all of them together posted on one of these galleries) - Thank you MandyLikesPie for the puppy and cactus & Miss moppet for my coffee cup - but no girl can have too many stuffed animals!

I claim animegirlie for Passport holder!! BIG WISH!! preferably with an "anti skimming" lining  Grin

Claim #1 / 0 outstanding / 0 sent / 0 received

I am in Florida in the USA!

Im in my mid thirties. My favorite colors are jewel tones like purple, green, blue, aqua. I like black, gunmetal and silver too. I love birds (all: owls, fat yard birdies, penguins, parrots, hawks etc). As far as fabric tastes go, I made a wist (see further down for link) of fabrics I love.  I love gaming like World of Warcraft or Myst. I like to read and am into fantasy art as well. Lord of the Rings is probably my all time favorite movie series. Star Wars comes in a close second though. Smiley
Allergies: I am allergic to cats. But if you just keep them away from the things you are sending, it should be fine. Smiley I am fairly certain I am allergic to mohair as well.

Dislikes: strong scents and cigarette smoke. I don't care for most pinks (although its starting to grow on me), orange, skulls, sock monkeys, pinup art or zombies.

I have two wist lists.  One is for things I'd love to have and the second is only of examples of fabric that I love.  Not that I wouldn't love to have fabric, but it is mostly for my partners so that you can see the types of fabrics I love.

Wists - the normal one of things I'd love to have:

Fabric wists - examples of fabrics I heart.


Updated my wists with a whole bunch of new items!  Smiley


- A poppet with long blonde hair and fair skin (not pink, blue etc, but normal skin color)

- A wisty surprise! http://www.wists.com/avesthel

- dyed wool that I can card into batts (but not mohair as I am allergic)

- sewing machine cover. Sounds silly, but I usually end up sewing things for other people and not myself. I really like this one with the sewn on embellishments, or maybe a bird embroidered on it from my wists. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290914.msg3336611;topicseen#msg3336611

- wire wall cross with stone similar to the one on my wists

- stained glass owl

- an owl themed surprise!

- tea towels with birds embroidered on them (I have some bird embroidery ideas that I love on my wists)

- knit or crochet shawl (in black)

- ceramic / pottery bowls all sizes, preferably natural earthy tones

- leather bound journal

- roving to spin

- jewelry from my wists

- This owl wall clock - http://www.wists.com/avesthel/4c475ec58764e7f24d7d1297bf85244f?offset=0

- gocco or lino pressed cards in birds or simple botanical themes

- thread catcher like this one, but maybe in a different fabric http://www.wists.com/avesthel/fc66aaa3daea89d3920b4ae4df761d86?offset=0

- Any of the amigurumis I have on my wists Smiley  Thank you RondaS for the dragon!!  Thank you dip_n_dot!


- bookbinding supplies

- tea towels to embroider

- metal bird or owl charms

- random metal charms

- skeleton/vintage keys

- scrabble tiles

- sock yarn - I will be happy with any and all, but I would really love superwash merino!  Smiley

- heart shaped hole punch

- superwash wool yarn

- glitzy stuff for adding to wool batts!  I love firestar and icicle top, but angelina is very welcome too.  Any color as I want to play with them all!   Smiley

- beads - glass and unique small/medium sized beads, but not seed beads.  Im wanting to add them to yarn as I spin.

- vintage buttons (with or without shanks)

- buttons - flat ones without the shanks, lots of fun colors, sizes etc  Smiley

- roving to spin

- chocolate pocky

- coffee from your area of the world

- chocolate from your area of the world


Thank you in advance if you choose me!
